Sugar Skulls

We learned about Sugar Skulls and their importance in a culture that might be different than our own. We discussed the importance of learning about and respecting others' cultures and beliefs even if we believe something different. 
We made our own Sugar Skull mask!  Ask your child to share with you about Sugar Skulls and why people make them.

Busy Bags

We received some very generous donations for our classroom.  Because of these donations, we each got a busy bag of STEM building materials. At the end of each week the materials are cleaned and rotated. We were so excited to start creating a building! (More pictures to come!)

FIRST DAY HOORAY!

We were so excited to start today!  School may look different, but one thing that isn't different is how happy we feel when we are with our friends....socially distant of course.  😄

We got outside to get some fresh air and we managed to take some first day pictures!




Guess I should not move my camera too soon.  OOPS!

Hip Hip Hooray, It's the 100th Day!

On the 100th Day of school Granny Wanke greeted us at the door!

We had a lot of fun on the 100th day of school.  We used an app to make us look extra old!  


















We built a structure with 100 cups...boys v. girls! It took us a lot of time to get this to work.  Lots of cups fell, but we persevered!




We read stories about the 100th day of school and practiced counting to 100.  Later in the day we took the 100th day physical challenge and we worked with partners to create something with 100 blocks.
